KAZIRANGA WILDLIFE SAFARI TOUR

Kaziranga Wildlife Safari Tour: Kaziranga Tiger reserve a UNESCO world heritage site is the only place in India where one can see the “One Horned Rhinoceros”. It also hosts two-third of worlds Rhino population. This wildlife tour from Mumbai will take you around the reserve on Elephant and Jeep safaris and we will also be visiting Majuli Islands – World’s largest River Island district. A little insight about the place and flora fauna of the reserve:

 

Kaziranga National Park:

Kaziranga National Park, Assam situated on the banks of Brahmaputra is one of the niche wildlife destinations. The park hosts the One Horned Rhinoceros which is only to be seen here. 430sq.kms area is widely spread across elephant grass-meadows, swampy lagoons and dense tropical forest. On recommendation of Mary Curzon in 1908 the national park was formed and declared UNESCO in 1985.

 

The park is breeding ground to Elephants, Wild water buffalo and swamp deer. The Big five of the park are “ONE HORNED RHINOCEROS, BENGAL TIGER, ELEPHANT, WILD WATER BUFFALO & SWAMP DEER”. More than the wildlife it is the Brahmaputra River which makes the beauty more enigmatic.  The park is also declared as Important Bird Area – IBA. Birds like lesser white-fronted goose, ferruginous duck, Baer’s pochard duck and lesser adjutant, greater adjutant, black-necked stork, and Asian Openbill stork specially migrate from the Central Asia during the winter season.

 

Majuli Islands:

It is a first of its kind, a river island and 1st island district of the country. It is also the world’s largest river island district situated on Brahmaputra River, Assam. Spanning a total area of 1250 sq.km, it is one of the surreal places in Assam. Lying between 2 channels of Brahmaputra, Majuli seems to be a picturesque watery idyll. It is surely a paradise in disguise.

    • Our safaris are not target species specific (Unless specified)
    • We explore everything we find uncommon and need to be explained.
    • Any demand for spotting a single species in any jeep will not be entertained by the guide or the tour leader as there are other travellers who would want to see the birds etc.
